Don't Allow Free Fall From Your Authentic Identity by Swami Nithyananda
In Kathopanishad, Nithya Satsang on 7 July 2015, Paramahamsa Nithyananda gives important revelation into the mind and being of Vajashravas, the king, father of Naciketa who has a free fall from his authentic identity - from being a ruler, Kshatriya to a business person, Vaishya and then even to a worker, Shudra; a king who is only meant to give the society and country, he cheats in the fire sacrifice gifting old cows. Vajashravas's degradation is a wakeup call for us – to never allow the free fall from our authentic identity, which is – what we want to be? how we want to live? The fulfillment that you LIVE is the first step for Enlightenment, possible only when we live as per our root pattern, our nature. As a Brahmana, our nature is to share knowledge, as a Kshatriya, we carry a business mental-setup and must go on giving, giving. Vedic Tradition does not stop growth but the growth should always be propelled, initiated, incited from Inner Space. Just by knowing our free fall, we can wake-up and stop it immediately. But, due to the Entertainment Industry, we are not allowed to recognise this free fall. He warns us to imemdiately stop the entertainment which is filled with imaginary background music and visuals that impurify our senses and are not good for a happy, conscious, awakened life. Today's subject for Vakyartha Sadas, spiritual exploration by discussing the truth is – contemplate on the truth of free fall from your authentic identity. How Vajashravas is going through a free fall? Today this is the concept to contemplate. Do Vakvartha Sadas on both the sacred secrets in this subject.

Nithyanandeshwari Madhyamaam |
Asmath Aachaarya Paryanthaam
Vandhey Guru Paramparaam ||
I welcome all of you with my love and respects. Inner Awakening has become almost like a electronic gadget and marriage. Everyone feels if we waited little more, we would have got something much better. (laughs)....but don’t wait. Understand, everyone feels if we waited little more we would have got something better. But don’t wait. The quicker you get in, better because lot of sufferings you are going through for no reason just because of not even being informed. Please understand; there are some sufferings you develop because you don’t have a right experience. But, there are many sufferings you are going through just because you are not informed. Inner Awakening will clear those tonnes of sufferings, which you are going through just because you are not informed. Please understand; many sufferings you are going through not because you don’t have experience also will also be cleared by my initiation that is one side. There will be many sufferings will be cleansed, you will be out of it which you are going through just because you are not informed. Understand, so have it as early as possible.
I will enter into Kathopanishad. I have something very important to share with you all in Kathopanishad today. I was explaining the way the Vajashravas mind was getting degraded and the space he was going through. Please understand, when I explain the degradation happening to Vajashravas, the meaning of the explanation is – please don’t allow that to happen in you. It is not that I have personal anger with Vajashravas, so I am tearing him to pieces. (laughs) No. I am doing literally post-mortem of his mind and his being, because ... so that you will not let that happen to you. See, if you are a person of the business nature, don’t ever try to enter into the power game. Because, in power game lot of risks will be taken, which you can’t afford.
You can easily be put in pain if you are a business natured person. Please understand, if you are a business natured person only one of your shop getting attacked is enough, you will move out of politics or you will move out of all the power game. Always try to catch your nature based on your root-pattern and fulfil that. That will bring tremendous feeling that you lived. Please understand the feeling that you lived, that fulfilment that you lived, that is the first step for Enlightenment. See, there are extraordinary Paramahamsas, who doesn’t even need to enter into life, who can just get everything out of their system and directly get enlightened. But, 99% of us are not that way. We get into the regular life and go through the ups and downs and root- pattern and everything. Only through this way we are going. So, 99% of us the way we are travelling ... please understand, the fulfilment you lived.
Self-actualization is the first step for Self-realization. The feeling you lived is a basic requirement. In Vedic tradition, we call that as – Pratyagātma Caitanya Jāgrat. The Individual Consciousness getting awakened in the body. Please listen, you don’t have to memorize the word, but at least listen. Pratyagaatma chaitanya jaagratha. The Individual Consciousness, which you ... ultimately Conscious is not individual, it is Cosmical, it is Cosmic. But, the Individual Consciousness which you perceive as Individual Consciousness, getting awakened in your body, that is the first step. When the awakening happens you will have a deep fulfilment. A Vaishya should be vaishya. Brahmana should be brahmana. Kshatriya should be Kshatriya.
But I don’t want to say the Vedic Tradition does not allow the growth of the individual. It allows by the inner transformation. Inside if you have transformed, you can evolve. There are thousands who are born as shudras, worshipped as brahmanas, by brahmanottamas. Kashi is the example. Adi Shankara, the greatest architect of modern day Hinduism, establisher of all the Brahmanical Sampradayas, fell at the feet of the Chandala. Not even shudra, lower than shudra. Later on his disciples who were not able to digest that he fell at the feet of chandala, made chandala as the incarnation of Vishwanatha. That is different. But, the truth is he fell at the feet of chandala that is the fact. Means what? Vedic Tradition does not stop growth, but the growth should always be propelled, initiated, incited from inner space. Not that for the sake of external comforts you can try to act, as if you are moving to the next ladder.
Here in the case of Vajashravas, he is not even going up, he is going down. A Kshatriya, ruler, king, who is supposed to be constantly giving. Please understand, in Vedic tradition only two communities are allowed to hold. Vaishyas are allowed to hold. Shudras are allowed to possess and hold. Kshatriya, can control only on behalf of country, but cannot personally hold. A Brahmana can’t even do that.
Please listen, the definition of Artha, wealth and possession is very clear in Vedic tradition. Vaishya and shudra only can have personal wealth. Kshatriya can protect on behalf of the country, on behalf of the community, on behalf of the group, society which he is ruling. But he can’t personally own. He has no right to own personally. He has no right to possess personally. At the most till his coronation as the king, the king’s son or daughter till they are coronated as a king or queen, they can have little small thing, gifts which they received from their elders, parents, they can own. That is why in Mahabharat you can see Duryodhana has little personal wealth. Few thousand, few lakh gold coins, which is nothing. But, Dhritarashtra can’t have. Till you are coronated as a king, you can have little bit, but not after you are a king. You can only control on behalf of country, on behalf of the kingdom, on behalf of the group which you are ruling, but not as personal wealth.
Brahmana can’t even do that. Neither he can possess nor he can control on behalf of the country, completely out ruled. Here Vajashravas gets into the cheap mentality of personal possession. Understand, only when you get into the mentality of the personal possession, you will start the business. The business mentality will start. So he falls from being a Kshatriya to Vaishya and by doing fraudulence in the business of giving the cows which are useless. He falls to the level of lower than the vaishya. He becomes so inauthentic. His authenticity has fallen three, four steps, almost like a free fall, free fall. I want every one of you to look within you and see from your authentic identity which you want to have. How much of free fall has happened, please sit and spend little time and find it.
Understand, most of the time just finding it will solve the issue. See, what is the authentic identity you want to have. That is the goal, the way you want to exist. That is your goal, that’s the way you want to exist. It can be Brahmana, Vaishya, Kshatriya, Shudra. Anything is okay. But your authentic identity, how you want to exist; from that, see how many steps you have fallen. See the free fall. Immediately you will wake up. See, the free fall will be happening as long as you don’t know the free fall is happening. The free fall will be stopped immediately the moment you know the free fall is happening to you. It is unfortunate you are not reminded the free fall is happening. The stupid entertainment industry is managing that you don’t get that intense about life, that authentic about life.
I tell you, if you are really, really, really interested in living spiritual life or living the life of Enlightenment, living the life where you want to cause your Reality, keep the stupid enlightenment ....this stupid entertainment industry out of your life. Please understand, anything great can be achieved only by keeping the entertainment industry out of your life. Even the stupid concept taught to you, ‘Oh you will be stressed if you don’t get little entertainment’. Then go and do all this stupid entertainment, are you out of stress? You are more stressed. The constant free fall happening, you are not even allowed to recognize it, you are not even allowed to understand it. You are not even given enough space to look into it. You are sitting in front of that stupid box for hours together.
Now that box has become slim and you have become fat. After few years, those days the box used to be big and you used to be slim, now the box has become big and you have become...Please understand, consider this very seriously, only first one week you will feel that you are missing something and all that. Have only internet to know the news. That also I am telling you, only get the information, news which is required, through the words by reading. Do not allow the sound. Do not allow the sound and visuals. Please understand; these are all a powerful mental fasting. See the Vedic tradition says – āhara suddhau smrti suddhih.
The purity of the food leads to purity of the memory. It is not just the food which you eat. It is the food which you eat through all five senses. Please consider this request very seriously.
Of course, you need to know what is happening with the world, in the world. You need to have much informations to run your life. Get everything in the internet, that also the plain word document type. Do not allow the sound or visuals. Please understand. Sound and visuals stop you reaching the reality, you seeing the reality. You know, by and by...by and by slowly, even in your regular life, in your imagination you always bring the cinema background music even for regular life situations. Only with that imagined background music you are even approaching every situation. How many of you are able to understand what I am saying that you are doing this in your life constantly in your imagination? Raise your hand. Don’t you see to the level the entertainment industry has gone into you and painted your perception and your life? I tell you the day human beings again start seeing the reality without the necessary for imaginary background music, unediting, imaginary editing and imaginary background music that day Satya Yuga starts.
You do not understand the damage your system goes through. With this imaginary background music and the imaginary editing you do about every incident in your life, the way you cherish your life.
